So in a couple of weeks we (the four of us in all of our glory) are going to Ireland for my nephew's Big Fat Irish Wedding.
Two recent things that I have seen/witnessed create a tight metaphor for our plan to do this:
1. During the half marathon that Cousin and I ran a few weeks ago, there was a sign at about mile 9 that read "This seemed like a good idea three months ago!"
2. For any of you who watch Modern Family, you'll remember the line on a recent episode in which Claire responded to a question about how great their family vacation to Hawaii was going to be: "I'm a mother of three" she said "This is a BUSINESS TRIP!"
Of course, I'm excited to go to Ireland, to see the wedding, to have a family vacation, blah blah blah.
But I can't wrap my head around getting the four of us across that ocean.
So we're stocking up on small snacks, books, toys, things to do. We're talking about it. We're considering medication.
Anyway, all tips, thoughts, ideas, recommendations are really, really welcome.
Oh, and insanity act number 2? I just signed up for a second half marathon.
Two days before Ireland.
